Chargers season has 'snowballed out of control'

V. Jackson sits in dejection as Denver beat San Diego (US Presswire).

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Slightly lost in the bright light emanating off Tim Tebow and his teammates in Denver’s overtime win against San Diego on Sunday was the fact the Chargers lost their sixth-straight contest after a 4-1 start.

That means they most likely can forget about making the playoffs, and coach Norv Turner can forget about coaching next season in San Diego. That means general manager A.J. Smith’s job also might be in danger.

So, what the hell went wrong with this team (aside from Sunday’s Tebowing experience)? Could be just plain old stupidity.

“We do the dumbest (stuff),” Shaun Phillips screamed out loud after the game, via the San Diego Union Tribune. “I’ve never been on a team that does the dumbest (stuff) all the time.”

And the worst part of that is …?

“It comes at the worst times,” left tackle Brandyn Dombrowski said. “… We’re killing ourselves.”

Remember, the Chargers actually took a 10-0 lead vs. Denver and looked decent enough in the early part of the game, and you had to figure that if they built a big lead, the Broncos would have to rely on their passing game -- which, as we know, is hardly their biggest strength.

Even though Tebow didn’t complete his first pass until late in the first half, the Chargers couldn’t take enough of an advantage and build up a big enough lead. Plus, they kept making those same silly mistakes that have plagued them all the way to a 4-7 record.

Or as Phillips said, “We keep doing the same old caca, then you’re going to keep getting caca.”

But credit goes to Philip Rivers, the quarterback in the league who’s had the most disappointing year, for the best quote of the day about the state of his team.

“It’s just snowballed out of control,” Philip Rivers said. “… There’s nothing I can say to make it sound good. It’s about as bad as it gets.”

AJ smith should be out the door right next to turner. Before the chargers turner was 30 games under .500 (about) and shottenheimer was one of the all time winningest. smith fires schotty and hires a dumb ass "yes man" in turner.  turning a championship contender into a rolling pile a junk that needs to be blown up and rebuilt in just a few seasons is pretty impressive though. on that note, helluva job norv. at least you accomplished something...

Chargers season has 'snowballed out of control'

My wife and I (transplants from NY state) now living in San Diego attended out very first Chargers game yesterday. We wore the hats, and jersey's of our beloved NY Jets. Our seats at Qualcom stadium were pefect: 40 yard line in the plaza section. We were surrounded by Bronco's fans for the most part and it was a sold out game. The atmosphere was like the "natives" say electric at the Q. But the game itself was anything but --- electric. The three stooges could have played a better game than the Chargers and Bronco's did for the first 4 quarters of regulation. Tim Tebow can run with the football, he threw some errant passes but the Bronco's only have Decker who can actually catch the ball on a regular basis. Rivers on the other hand looked slow in the pocket and in slow motion out of it. For all intensive purposes the Charger's' season is over and during the game the fair-weather hometown fans let "their" team know it with constant boo's and cat calls for Turner and Smith to be fired. The wife and I agreed we were watching the making of history. The rise of Tebow and the Bronco's and the fall of Rivers and the Chargers.  
One of the lamest posts of all-time, this trainwreck went noooooo where. Maybe you should goto a Jets game in New York instead and listen to your fellow Jets fans boo Mark Sanchez, I mean wow, could you be any more out of touch with reality? "The making of history" is what you call a game between 2 mediocre teams, eh? Katz should yank your post out of spite.

Now you know...

Also Chargers, my Bolts, your season is done...Hang it up and play the 2012 Draft and get as high as you can. Who knows, you may get so lucky as to get a new young QB in the top 10 plus a new GM that knows a dumbass coach does to an elite team like the Chargers and a fiery but lovable new HC (there are many I like to fill here). It will be an exciting offseason again in San Diego. Go Bolts!

Ummm I know the roster very well buddy. But I don't know that that was Shaun Phillips because the person was not identified. How the hell is someone who DOESN'T know the roster supposed to know who he's referring to? Basic English class tells me that you clearly indicate who you're quoting/writing about in your article, and that's usually done by including their first name.

Shaun Phillips most likely. If you're going to call a writer out you could at least be familiar with the roster of the team in question.

I didn't know grown men, especially 6'5" football pro football players, use the word "caca."
